2. Chapter One

 

CHAPTER ONE

It's funny how one little number can mean so much. Take one for example, it's almost a zero, but one isn't really just a number, is it? It signifies things much more than that. It signifies me - 1 person. One. 1. 1 person in this 1 world.

1 is rather lonely, being on its own as after all it's just one, not two. It's even lonelier than zero because 0 is nothing but 1 is something. Bit like me really, I'm 1, that lonely little number all alone. I know I have a family but even if there are people around you it is possible to still feel lonely. Especially in school, I have always been that lonely one at the back, no friends, on her own, just some one. 1.

I may sound mad saying 1 all the time, heck you probably think I'm wrong in the head but I'm not, it's just I'm using 1 as a sort of metaphor for myself. 1 is me. No, it's not my name, my name is Kira but that's not important right now. I just mean I am like a 1. On her own, as one person, living one life. 1.

I sound mad, don't I? Saying 1 all the time. I just said it again. 1. I keep saying it, I need to shut up. 1. It's like one of those oddly weird things, that you can't stop saying, no matter how annoying it is or how mad it makes you seem. 1. Do you understand that? I do but yeah, it's weird I know. I am weird… I guess, maybe I am mad. Well, who would bang on about 1 all the time if they weren't just a little bit mad?

I don't know, I don't think I'm mad, I can't be. I'm just normal. I just... It's in my head... 1.... I don't know why. 1... it's strange. 1...

I don't understand it. It's like it's something important in my brain, screaming out at me.

1........1.................1........................1...........................1.

1.

I can't stop it. I keep trying to stop myself, invade my brain with another number, like 2. But I can't, 2 feels weird to think of. 2.... 1... 1... 1.

1... 2... 3...

The start of a sequence.

1, before 2, after 0. Between the two of them. Nothing - 0. Someone - 1. Two people, more than one - 2. I am 1, that one person. I am not 2 after all, not 2 people, just 1.

1... Always 1.

Over and over and over again in my brain, it surrounds me. 1... 1... 1... I can't think, I can't see, I don't know where I am. Where am I?

1... It just fills my brain, taking over. 1. 1. 1.

1...

What does it mean? 1... Me. I am 1... But no. I am not, I am a person. 1 is a number. I am a person... But 1 person... But who?

I don't know, I can't think, there is just noise in my head, screaming. No, it's from my mouth, screaming. I'm screaming. My screaming. What am I screaming?

1. Over again... 1... 1... 1... 1... 1...

I can't think.

1... 1... 1... 1... The thudding of my heart.

1... 1... 1... 1... The sound of feet.

1... 1... 1... 1... Noise over and over again.

1... 1... 1... 1... What is happening?

1... 1... 1... 1...
